UAB Greek Life battles hazing stereotypes

This week is National Hazing Prevention Week and UAB’s Panhellenic Council, the umbrella organization over the women’s fraternities and sororities, is taking a stand. With 3 in 5, college students subjected to hazing each year, UAB Greek Council is taking the initiative to end the violence.

“These Hands Don’t Haze, is an event between all of the sorority councils at UAB. To show their support, they will be hosting a paint mixer at the campus’ mini park this Wednesday from 5:30-6:30pm. Each sorority member in attendance will get the chance to decorate banners in various colors with their handprint.

This fun event will create a visual representation of their pledge to stand up against hazing while fostering sisterhood and bringing together the Greek community. It will also raise much-needed awareness campuswide, hopefully spreading the importance nationwide.

Hazing is harmful, unproductive, and dangerous and has absolutely no room in any sorority at UAB and we are proud to stand against it by hosting this event”
